out and the number one pick is out as well. you hope it keeps getting better as they go along, but so much of aaron rodgers success is the ability to get five receivers out and the more they have to help in pass protection, the more their offense looks different. >> al: the game ends and the victory formation for the new york giants who go to 7-4. same record that the packers will now have. the giants dominate. 38-10 is the final score. the wendy's postgame report is coming up. . okay, here's the plan.

with special perks on united. all giants tonight. 38-10 over the packers. coming in as you know the giants had dropped two straight and eli manning was decidedly off his game. tonight, he threw for three touchdowns. in the meantime, aaron rodgers has sacked five times. osi umenyiora had one of those sacks and he forced a fumble. there are your two stars of the game and they are with michele. >> michele: eli, how would you describe the difference in the team we saw tonight versus the one that lost two games heading into the bye week? >> yeah, we got off to a fast start and that was important. something we wanted to do and no one scored on them in the opening drive of the game and hit the screen to ahmad. he had a big play.
8:34 pm
got a touchdown. defense was getting turnovers. we jumped out. we played as a full team and something we have been missing a while and offense and defense and special teams playing great football. >> michele: what did you do in the bye week that helped you tonight? >> i think we got some rest. guys got away from the facility and away from football for a little bit. we had ten weeks, two long weeks after the hurricane. a lot going on. so i think our bodies and our mind needed a little rest and it helped out tonight. >> michele: 200 touchdown passes. you are the giants all-time leader now passing up phil simms. what does that mean to you, eli? >> well, tonight was we needed a win was the most important thing. but any time, you know, you pass a great like phil simms and charlie connerly and so many great quarterbacks over the years, you know, it's an honor just to be mention inside their company. >> michele: congratulations on the win. >> thanks a lot. >> michele: osi, the defense got to aaron rodgers all night. >> right. >> michele: five sacks on rodgers.
8:35 pm
you had a sack fumble. how were you guys so effective in getting to him. >> we have to get pressure on him and he's an outstanding quarterback and football player. any quarterback you get pressure on them you have a better chance to win and we needed to step up this week for the giants. >> michele: tom coughlin told me at halftime he said to you guys in the locker room we want to go out and regain the respect of the football unit. >> right. >> michele: how did you accomplish that tonight? >> it was important. all heart and all hustle. we had a week off and greneeded regroup. we came out and played like that today. >> michele: congratulations. >> bob? >> michele, thanks. both teams 7-4. difference is that is good for a two-game lead over the cowboys and redskins for the giants. in the nfc east. 7-4 puts the packers a game back of the bears in the nfc north. let's switch to manhattan and tony dungy. your reaction to tonight's game. >> bob, giants fans have to be
8:36 pm
breathing easier tonight as tom coughlin told you in our pregame show he had two objectives. number one to get eli manning playing the way he is capable of playing and, two, to get victor cruz back involved. they were able to do that tonight. eli had time. he was able to get victor going and when their offense scores points, it just makes their defense that much more effective. all of those sacks tonight really the result of getting ahead early in the game. >> let's switch conferences. what do you make right now of the afc wild card race? >> i tell you, the four divisions are about sewed up and really three wild card teams now fighting it out. pittsburgh, indianapolis, and cincinnati. all year long, we had pittsburgh penciled in but it doesn't look so secure right now. they are not playing good football. everybody is focused on ben roethlisberger not being there, but they have had offensive line problems and holding penalties and protection problems and no holes for the running backs. if they don't get this
8:37 pm
straightened out, pittsburgh is in danger of not making the playoffs. >> tony, thanks as always. we turn to mike florio now from pro football talk. take us through some of the day's most important injuries. >> bob, big win for the bears but it comes at a price. they lost six starters today to injury including running back matt forte who missed the stretch run in 2011 with a knee injury. he has an ankle injury from today's game. cornerback charles tillman one of the best defensive players in the league has an ankle injury and linebacker lance briggs i'm i'm told his ankle injury is not serious but left soldier field in a walking boot. brandon weeden suffered a concussion after thrown in the leg of a teammate and he'll have to be cleared by team doctors and an independent neurologist before he can return to practice. in that same game, lamarr woodley of the steelers suffered an ankle injury and i'm told it's not believed to be a
